There is a global abundance of antiques and discarded plastics, woods, and metals.  I wanted to do my part in recycling some of these components and forming a cohesive artistic expression and sometimes a quirky visual narrative.  I scour antique shops for unique pieces and try to reuse other materials when available.  


I let the textures, shapes, colors and unique aspects of a particular set of objects guide me through the process.  I also depend on the richness of the character, patina, history and personality of these found pieces.
